run those turrets in and out end to end many times to work it in, if no clicks then change to #30 o-ring, under the turrets, from the hardware store and put some dielectric silicon grease on that o-ring and work it some more.  If still no good clicks call swfa, I just sent my new  scope back in just for this reason.

Amen. Dog nailed this one. Work those turrets back and forth awhile.

The only time my SS has silent clicks is if I crank the elevation up quickly and then turn it slowly in the opposite direction; the silent clicks only last for about 3 clicks (they may be silent but you can still feel them). Besides that I am very satisfied with my purchase and I haven't had a single problem with my super sniper.

BANG!

Rem- sounds like you still have the bigger o-ring in there, when I first bought a ss thats what would happen, tight and no clicks for a bit, but when I went to #30 o-rings that went away.

Yeah I quess I do have the bigger o-ring in my scope because I haven't taken anything off my SS. After my last post I went and cranked the elevation up and down trying to recreate my prior results and I'm happy to say every click is audible. Maybe it fixed itself because of the constant use I put it through. PPPSSSHHHH..who knows
